Hallam Enjoys a Record-Breaking Night at the Drum Recommends Digital Awards

Hallam, the national multi-award-winning digital marketing agency based in Nottingham, claimed an incredible 10 awards at the annual The Drum Recommends Digital Awards on Wednesday 21 October.

Notably, the business claimed the prestigious Grand Prix award for a third successive year in the 40-99 staff category. The Grand Prix recognises the agency that has excelled across a wide range of categories.

Hallam also claimed Digital Full Service, Digital Strategy, Strategic Thinking, Creativity/Innovation, Content Strategy/Creation, Social, Analytics, Search, and Service Delivery prizes after being nominated for 14 awards, which are all determined by client feedback and ratings, instead of an independent judging panel, towards the end of September.

The event was held virtually for the first time, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The recognition comes just a month on from the agency being crowned as the Best Large Integrated Agency at the 2020 European Search Awards for its commitment to delivering strategic thinking, strategy, and innovation to its clients.


Speaking shortly after the conclusion of the awards night, Julio Taylor, CEO at Hallam, said:

This is another proud moment for our agency and team. It’s great to be recognised for such a prestigious industry award, especially during such a difficult and challenging year for everyone. But it’s an even greater honour to win awards that come directly from client feedback.

We’re especially delighted to see our work in Strategy recognised — we’ve made a clear decision to become a strategic agency that builds close partnerships with our clients as we help them forge their way into the digital-first economy of the future.

I’m also delighted to win the Grand Prix Award – one that speaks volumes about what our clients think of us and the work we do. Our colleagues are producing fantastic work every day for our clients and there is no greater feeling than seeing those efforts recognised with an award like this.

Earlier this month, Hallam was also nominated for the Independent Marketing Services Company of the Year (0-100) ahead of The Drum Recommends Digital Awards night this month. The winner will be announced on Friday 23 October.
